The NG Ways and Best Ways to Carry Your Phone While Running or Cycling

Let's See the NG ways and the Best ways to carry your phones while running and cycling.

How to keep your phone while running and cycling

With the advancement of technology and the growing popularity of mobile devices, most of the things that people used to do on computers are now being done on cell phones. The use of cell phones is no longer limited to communication and photography, but also extends to shopping, navigation, recording exercise, watching videos, listening to music, etc. A cell phone can meet so many needs, and the importance of cell phones is self-evident.

Thanks to technology, your cell phone now has multiple functionalities.

Usually, you always want your phone on standby and close to you, while you are doing outdoor sports. For example, you may use your phone to listening to music while running. Beside, some people don't like to miss each of message even when they are doing exercise. Since then, how to keep your phone while doing outdoor activities, and how to keep phone in the comfortable ways, has become a headache for those who play outdoor sports.

NG method of cell phone in outdoor sports
If you are a long-term outdoor sports enthusiast who runs or cycles, I believe this question will certainly not be new to you: "While taking part in outdoor sports, what is the best way to carry a phone?”

The common NG placement methods for cell phones during outdoor sports are as follows:
• Put in the pocket
The pocket is the simplest way. But running and cycling are not like indoor or in situ sports; during these sports you are constantly moving forward, so it is actually quite dangerous to place your phone in your pocket, as, if you are not careful, you may lose it without realizing it has gone.

On the other hand, sportswear is usually light and comfortable to wear, but modern cell phones are moving towards larger screen sizes, so they often feel heavy and uncomfortable when in your pocket, making running or cycling uncomfortable.

Putting your phone in your pocket while exercising is actually quite dangerous and not the best choice

• Holding it directly
Some people may think: "Since it's so inconvenient to put it in my pocket, why not just hold it in my hand?" They think that holding the phone in their hand is not too big a problem.

However, running and cycling are both sweat-prone sports, so if you are holding it without any accessories, you can easily lose the phone when running, because of the sweat and slipperiness, and when cycling, it is difficult to store and can be dangerous when braking.

If you hold the phone directly in your hand while exercising, you may lose it if you don't have any accessories to attach it.

Holding a cell phone while riding a bicycle is also very dangerous.

• Put it in your backpack or waist pack

Of course, there are people who have got into the habit of putting wallets, keys, small cards and cell phones in a light backpack or waist pack during sports. The advantage of this is that plenty of small items can be stored together, but the disadvantage is that if the waist pack is not stable or is too heavy, the waist pack will move up and down from time to time during travel, and when running or cycling this will cause discomfort.

If the backpack or waist pack is not stable, it is easy for it to cause discomfort during exercise.

There is a better way to keep your cell phone close to your body
If you want to keep your cell phone close to your body during sports, choosing the right accessories can improve your grip and sense of touch and make it more convenient to take your phone during sports.

I. Running: Choose the right grip and touch accessories.
If you don't like putting your phone in your waist bag or backpack when you exercise and tend to hold it in your hand or tie it to your arm band to be more comfortable, it is recommended that you choose a suitable accessory, with a better grip or touch to reduce any discomfort.

Accessories with good grip and touch are usually very flexible, easy installed, and made from lightweight skin-friendly materials. For example, arm sleeves can be made using silicone ties or other light and breathable material, and should have an uncomplicated and lightweight design, all of which can improve the comfort.

Therefore, when choosing a running phone strap, you should pay attention to :
1. Whether the material is skin-friendly and sweat-resistant.
2. Whether the phone can be safely fixed.
3. Whether the size of the strap matches the thickness of the arm.

Bone's Run Tie use the skin-friendly material to keep the skin be comfortable while running.

II. Cycling: Attach it to the bicycle
When riding a bicycle, fixing the phone on a phone holder is probably the best way. You are effectively using the space and reducing the risk of dropping your phone while riding.

However, it is important to note that if you are riding on a bumpy route or training for a triathlon or cycling competition, some phone holders are not flexible enough due to the plastic material used, and the parts can easily loosen when the holder is used extensively, increasing the chances of your phone or phone holder falling off.

Therefore, when purchasing a bicycle cell phone tie and cell phone frame, you need to pay attention to :
1. Whether the material is flexible and ductile.
2. Whether it is shock-resistant and stable.

Run Tie, phone holder ,running, cycling
Bone's Bike Tie use the elastic silicone material which can absorb the vibration caused when riding, and the mobile phone is fixed more smoothly.

The above are the more comfortable and NG methods of carrying your cell phone with you when taking part in outdoor sports. Bone has developed running and cycling cell phone ties made exclusively for running and cycling sports. The material and structure have been carefully designed so that the cell phone can become a help rather than a resistance during these sports, and so that all our friends who love sports can move more freely.
